The report claims that Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur are also interested, suggesting that Thomas Tuchel‘s side face a battle to secure his signature.
Menino has a contract with Palmeiras until December 2024, placing his club in a strong position when it comes to any potential negotiations with interested parties.
This suggests it’s likely we’re going to see Menino in Europe sooner or later, with the Brazil youth international surely set for a big future at the highest level of the game.
Chelsea have shown more of a willingness to develop and promote youth in recent times, with a number of talented players coming up through their academy, while recent signings like Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz are young players with their best years ahead of them.
Menino could be another fine fit for the Blues, but one imagines he might also be tempted by a potential offer from Tottenham because they would probably be able to offer him more regular playing time, which would surely be essential for him at this stage of his career.
